The Kerryman publishes Right of Reply from Kathryn O'Shea and Tom Healy

A Right of Reply from our Chairperson Kathryn O’Shea and former Chairperson Tom Healy has been published in The Kerryman today (8th March).

Inclusion Ireland was referenced in an article titled ‘When jargon fails the vulnerable’ that was published in The Kerryman on Wednesday, 8th February 2017.

Inclusion Ireland asked for a Right of Reply and an opportunity to address some of the issues that were raised in the above article.

Our Right of Reply deals with wider concerns about using labels and terms to describe persons with intellectual disabilities and touches on some broader disability policy considerations.

The Right of Reply, The Kerryman article from February and another piece that was referenced in the original Kerryman article are all available from the links below.
